Meditation Prolongs Life
May 2: A new study of 202 people found that transcendental meditation prolonged life. Based on ancient Hindu writings, transcendental meditation involves repeating a mantra to achieve a state of relaxation. The study evaluated men and women who had mildly elevated blood pressure. The subjects, average age of 71, were monitored over 18 years. The death rate for those who meditated was 23 percent lower. The results are reported in the May 2 issue of the American Journal of Cardiology. The research was funded in part by the National Institutes of Health.
